I've added an entry in the RFE tracker at http://sf.net/projects/python

Regarding the correctness doubts, I can provide these three points os far:

a) ISO 8859-n vs ISO-8859-n
If the information at 
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8859-1#ISO_8859-1_vs_ISO-8859-1 
is correct, Python 8859-n 
codecs do implement the ISO standard charsets ISO 8859-n 
in the specialized IANA forms ISO-8859-n (and in agreement 
with the Unicode mapping files). So any difficult C0/C1 
wording in the original ISO standard can be disregarded.

b) libiconv ISO 8859-11
The implementation by Bruno Haible in libiconv does agree 
with the Unicode mapping file:
http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/libiconv/libiconv/lib/

c) IBM ICU4C
The implementation in ICU4C does agree with the Unicode 
mapping file:
http://oss.software.ibm.com/cvs/icu/charset/data/ucm/
